Trump Impeachment Chances Grow After Bid To Unseal Grand Jury Evidence As President Threatens Obama Probe

Earlier this week Elijah Cummings, the House Oversight Committee chairman, was given the authority to subpoena White House officials including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

“The Committee has obtained direct evidence that multiple high-level White House officials have been violating the Presidential Records Act by using personal email accounts, text messaging services, and even encrypted applications for official business - and not preserving those records in compliance with federal law,” Mr Cummings said on 25 July.

Some political reporters, including Politco's Kyle Cheney, are linking the committee's decision with the president's attack on Mr Cummings.
